Violation of Joint Legal Custody
Joint legal custody requires parents to meet, confer, and discuss items regarding the minor child or children of the parties. Many times this is not done and one party of another just tells the other party what they did. From a practical standpoint, it is hard to show willful contempt in this area because normally the parties get where neither one communicates well with the other. However, this can be an area to probe into in other proceedings, (i.e. modification, increase in child support, etc.) to undermine the credibility of a witness.
